The History of Bishopville Presbyterian Church

October, 1830 - Stated Session of New Harmony Presbytery, part of Mt. Zion Church, upon request and petition, was dissolved, and constituted a Church by name of “New Hope.” New Hope was located 5 miles of Bishopville on Hwy 15 S.

October, 1838 - Members of New Hope agreed to request Presbytery to dissolve said Church and be organized into a new Church of Bishopville. It was therefore resolved. This was the beginning of the Bishopville Presbyterian Church.

Spring, 1839 - A lot, 150 yards on the front and 80 yards back from the road, was given by Mr. James W. English. A building 40 by 54 feet was erected, with galleries on two sides and one end completed in February 1840. The congregation has had but two church buildings; the original one, completed in 1840, that served for nearly 70 years when it gave place to the present handsome building which was erected at a cost, including furnishings and heating, of $22,000.

January, 1877 - The Ladies Aid & Missionary Society was organized with 26 members. In 1920 the name changed to “The Women’s Auxiliary”

January, 1919 - A committee and Fund was formed to purchase a pipe organ for the church.

1928 - The first record of Bible School was recorded.

March, 1940 - Church bulletins began. Membership: 256.

March, 1944 – A Sunday school building campaign began. An amount of $5,525 was already on hand for this purpose.

February, 1949 – A contract for constructing a new Sunday school building was awarded at a cost of $27,000. (our Current Fellowship Hall)

1951 – 1952 - Statistical report to Presbytery reflects Church membership at 334 and Sunday school attendance at 340.

February 1957 - The urgent need of additional Sunday school space was recognized. The Session & Diaconate developed a building Fund for the new Educational Building.

April 1961 - Air conditioning was installed in the Sanctuary and Ladies Bible class at a cost of $75,000.November 1963 - After many years of talking, praying, sacrificing, and hoping for a new Educational building, we entered a contract in the amount of $106,914. A ground breaking service was held on December 15, 1963 and completed with the laying of the cornerstone on July 26, 1964.
